Campos has selected 20-year-olds Hugo Valente and Fernando Monje for its new assault on the World Touring Car Championship.
Adrian Campos's team announced last week that it was entering into partnership with long-time works SEAT WTCC team SUNRED to field two Leons in this year's series.
Spaniard Monje (pictured) contested a partial WTCC season with SUNRED last year, claiming two points finishes and also winning the European Touring Car Cup.
Valente switched from single-seaters to saloons for 2012 and emerged with the runner-up spot in France's one-make SEAT series, before getting a one-off WTCC chance with SUNRED in China.
The Frenchman will miss the first three meetings before starting his WTCC season in Hungary in May.
